English out, again

Coach Bob Stoops said Monday that defensive end Auston English won’t play at OSU this weekend. English, the preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year, has missed the last two games with a sprained knee. Stoops said English could "possibly” return next week if OU advances to the Big 12 Championship.

Bradford, Lewis honored

Bradford and linebacker Travis Lewis were named Big 12 players of the week after OU’s 65-21 victory over Texas Tech. Bradford threw for 301 yards and four TDs. Lewis had 13 tackles, a forced fumble and a 47-yard interception return.

Quotable

"That kind of stuff gets old. It does for everybody. That’s why I’ve come full circle (in favor of a playoff). Let’s get a group of teams together and go fight for it. Then, you don’t have to do all that stuff.” — Stoops on having to campaign for his team’s standing in the BCS.
